[www.inewsguyana.com] – Residents of Agricola, East Bank of Demerara recently held a candle light vigil for Shaquille Grant, who was killed by three police officers on September 11, 2012.
The officers were charged with the teen’s murder; however, two of them have been on the run.
Grant’s mother, Shonette Adams expressed frustration with the approach of the Guyana Police Force in apprehending these men and she believes more needs to be done to bring her son’s killers to justice.
“As far as I know no effort has been made by them to do anything because I go places there are no police stations in this country that Warren Blue or Jamal Lewis post up wanted bulletin, no photograph overseas either because I go places, I got people go places and we looking out, no effort I am very much disappointed and sad,” the woman said.
She explained that Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee promised that the Police will put their best foot forward to apprehend these men. The distraught mother no longer believes him.
“It’s like you read the newspaper and you look at the television less than what happened to my son other people going through and its already being solved, people being arrested for so many different stuff and when I look at it Warren Blue being traversing this country, at one point Warren Blue and Jamal Lewis was arrested in the interior and this is confidential information that I received and one way or the other.”
Police Constable Terrence Wallace, who was charged with the murder of the Agricola youth, has been committed to stand trial in the High Court.
It is alleged that Grant was with several other boys sitting under a shed in a yard on Caesar Street, Agricola, when three uniformed police ranks shot him.
